The light of my life

Chelsea and Ryan met at a family wedding. "In the evening, we both had a bit too much drink and kissed on the dancefloor in front of everyone," says Chelsea. "My dad came in between us, and the rest is history!"

Ryan popped the question at the Yosemite National Park in California. "We went on a road trip back in 2018," shares the bride. "Ryan insisted we visit the park, so we spent a couple of days there. We parked at the bottom of a mountain for a picnic. We walked up to the top, which was scary as we had to watch out for bears because of our food!... read more

Our little big day

Jasmine and Stephen met through a mutual friend on a night out in Croydon. "It was far from love at first sight," says Jasmine. "In fact, Stephen thought I was a bit stuck up, and to be honest, I don't think I said two words to him that night, so it's no wonder his first impression wasn't a great one! We met again on New Year's Eve the following month, and again, there was no love story. We went out as part of a large group in Bournemouth and barely remembered saying hello or goodbye to each other. Less than a month later, we ended up on another night out together. I had dyed my hair back to brunette, which apparently made me Stephen's type. He spent most of the night trying to figure out how to make his move. We finally exchanged numbers and had our first date a week later, and the rest is history!"... read more

"We'd spent the whole day celebrating, and I was about to return my gown when he insisted we visit a spot for another photo," shares the bride. "Little did I know he was actually going to propose.

Tiffany and Tom: Once upon a time

Tiffany and Tom met on a cold night in October 2003. "We first laid eyes on each other in a nightclub in Reading," says Tiffany. "Tom could see I was freezing while waiting to get served at the bar and offered me his jacket. A few drinks later and the rest is history! The weeks following were filled with romantic dates that Tom chose so thoughtfully. We realised we had so much in common and that our fields of work even overlapped. It didn't take Tom long to make it official, and by Christmas, we were a couple very much in love. The next few years were filled with so many exciting memories, including moving into our first flat, visiting Switzerland, travelling South East Asia, buying our first house and getting our first dog. It became abundantly clear early on that this was the real deal."... read more

Nothing can keep us apart

Anna and Craig began talking on a dating app. "Just after we met, Craig went away with the army to Sierra Leone," says Anna. "He forgot to tell me that he was going into the jungle and would have no means of messaging me, so after a few months of thinking he'd ghosted me, he reappeared, and we started talking again. On his return he invited me to a formal dinner at his regiment, however, he forgot to say that the dinner was being held in Norfolk, which was three hours away! Upon discovering this critical piece of information, I insisted we went on a date before the dinner and that he met my parents so I could put them at ease.... read more

A ray of sunshine

"We always had a great time talking to each other, and the time would fly by. When one of our mutual friends didn't turn up for an evening get-together, and it was too late for either of us to cancel, we met up and gradually became closer. It surprised us both when we are realised we might be becoming something more. During one of our meetings, we kissed, and things went from there."Leslie popped the question during a holiday to Sicily in 2017. "We had talked about getting married and had even spent one afternoon looking at rings, but I still didn't expect the proposal," shares the bride. "We were visiting Punta Secca where Inspector Montalbano was filmed when he asked me. The ring came in a giant box, so Leslie had wrapped it in foam and lots of sellotape. He was struggling to get the tape off and had to use his teeth. I still didn't believe he was being serious until I saw the ring gleam in the sun. He'd designed it himself and had it made by a man called Vincent Loveland. Now every time we watch Inspector Montalbano, we point to the place where he proposed."... read more
